The Balsa Retro Longboard

Handshaped and hand-glued limited edition guns, longboards, and other classic shapes. Made out of Peruvian balsa and a variety of exotic woods, this is the best material for a smooth ride on a sizeable wave. They ride like Cadillac’s and are a collectors item with limited production of less than 100 a year.
Tim’s story behind the model: “Balsa Guns—this is one of my favorite categories. It is what have been shaping since the 70’s and 80’s, through all my years at Lightning Bolt Surfboards.”
